    I had the S3 on verizon and had poor voice/data coverage compared to my Motorola phone. I have the Note 2 now and the signal/voice strength is excellent. It even works in my underground basement!

    I am curious how the S4 radios work on VZ, especially if you can compare it to the Note 2.

    Thanks!

    I'd like to know this as well. Both in my office and at my weekend place in the mountains of WV, I could not get a good voice signal with my S3. I could use my Razr Maxx HD and my iPhone 5 in both places, no problem. I am tempted by the S4, but not if it has weak cell reception.

    Keep in mind I haven't had my ( Verizon ) S4 even 24 hours, but so far the signal is on par w/ what I had w/ my S3 & Note 2. In my office I get 3 bars, just as I did on my S3 & Note 2. In my bedroom it goes back & forth between 4 & 5 bars just as it did on my S3 & Note 2.

    Hope this helps.

    I fear this is going to be something that varies from person to person -- as I had the opposite experience of the opening premise: VZW signal shitty on Moto phone, but very good on S3.
